Long range bow hunting



I was wondering what do most you consider long range for a bow and what is your farthest kill so far?

    I shot a buck and a doe each at 38 yards for my personal longest.

    I ran out of room for pins at 90. So that's my max. I know people that shoot to 130. Fast bows, shooting off of steady stix.

    My furthest bow kill so far was 74.5 yards on a muley.

    I would think it would be opposite shorter on elk longer on deer. Elk are way harder to kill than deer.
